Go Texan Day: We want to see your office's getups

When I was a little girl, I knew when it was rodeo season ? not because I was patiently awaiting the deep-fried everything and playing with goats at the petting zoo, which I definitely was ? but because on the Friday before the rodeo rolled out, I was dressed Texan to a T. I'd have tiny cowboy boots with a matching hat and a bandana around my neck; and a few years, my mom handmade my Western wear. While I might not still have her as my personal clothier, she instilled the tradition in me just?

How to grow your communication skills

Human communication is complex, but the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word ?communication? is often spoken or written words. However, the words we speak and hear are just one way we communicate, and some studies show that most of our communication takes place through other means. Humans communicate in many different ways, such as verbal, nonverbal, body language and artistic communication, which is through images or music. The way we communicate with people affects all aspects?

New Houston LGBT chamber of commerce forms

Houston has many different chambers of commerce that identify with different geographic regions and demographics. Beginning this spring, the LGBT community will have one as well. Roughly 3.3 percent of the Greater Houston area identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, according to a recent Gallup poll, but there is no chamber of commerce that represents and promotes LGBT-owned businesses, said Tammi Wallace, co-chair of the steering committee.

Sam Houston State routs UH 12-2

Behind an offensive onslaught and four hitless innings by freshman lefthander Kyle Backhus, Sam Houston State handed the No. 20 Cougars their most lopsided loss of the season, 12-2 on Tuesday night at Schroeder Park. The Cougars managed just three hits - two of them home runs by Jake Scheiner and Landon Etzel with the game out of reach - and the Bearkats feasted on an overmatched UH pitching staff. Riley McKnight had a two-run homer, Bryce Johnson had three hits, and Taylor Beene drove in three runs for the Bearkats, who beat UH for the second straight week to claim the inaugural Sanders Cup. Hurdsman did not survive the inning, allowing three runs on one hit in 12?3 innings.

Before she went missing, Mary Cerruti left a self-portrait at her home in the Houston Heights

Shocked that a missing person's belongings could be sold, Heights-area resident Elizabeth Stein went to see what she might save. Officials have sent at least one of the discovered teeth to the University of North Texas for DNA analysis, but it could be months before they have results. The process is time consuming, and the lab's backlog grew recently when others learned its federal funding was being cut. Cause of death also remains pending.The collection of photos, which Stein gave to another concerned neighbor, don't crack the case. [...] they offer a rare look at a woman's life in the years before became an unlikely neighborhood activist, taking on the company building apartments all around her, and then disappeared. Printed in 2013 and 2014, the images focus on two topics: her cats, that brought her joy at home, and the gentrification of her neighborhood, that infuriated her. A photograph of a yellow house, surrounded by a chain-link fence and hidden behind much greenery, sets the stage. On the lots facing her, a pair of $500,000-plus townhouses took the place of the two-story "whore house apartments," she wrote. Bradley Smith, owner of Smith Family Homes, built a row of townhouses on what used to be a messy, wooded area at the opposite end of Cerruti. Long-time Heights resident Sally Romano noticed the neighborhood "really beginning to change," she wrote in an email. [...] the bulldozing saddened her, erasing the area's diversity and character and replacing it with what she called homogenous, soulless buildings. A Houston Post newspaper dispenser sat near a red Adirondack chair on the porch. [...] there was also the trouble they created, biting the phone line (the dead phone problem), destroying panties and shoes (all are fair game) and pouncing on each other after eating wet food (like a shot of adrenaline). Davis, who kept the photos, emailed Trammell Crow on her behalf at least once, in early 2

Cold case from 1976 revived by authorities

The dead man, identified as 28-year-old Rene Anthony Guillotte, had been stabbed several times and had lacerations on his torso, head and neck, according to Harris County sheriff's deputies. According to the criminal complaint against him filed last week, David Lee Edds' name was linked to the slaying from the beginning. According to the criminal complaint against him filed last week, Edds' name was linked to the slaying from the very beginning. Edds served about half the time and continued on with further convictions in Harris County for crimes ranging from resisting arrest to drug possession, according to court records. Following the case's reopening, the Cold Case Unit detectives entered the biological evidence into the Combined DNA Index System - or CODIS. "CODIS had a match for a person named David Edds, the same David Edds whose driver's license was found near the body," the criminal complaint stated.

Mayor and police chief seek to reassure immigrants they can safely report crimes

Even as the controversial 'sanctuary cities' bill winds its way through the state legislature, Houston officials came together Monday evening to reassure members of the local immigrant community that they can still use police and other city services without running into immigration problems. "Do not fear the Houston Police Department unless you're involved in criminal activity - then we want you to fear us," Chief Art Acevedo told the crowd of more than 100 gathered for the southwest Houston town hall-style panel discussion geared toward the Muslim community. MJ Khan, Islamic Society of Greater Houston president and the event moderator, peppered city officials and prominent Muslim community members with questions about immigrant rights during the hour-long panel. The fresh reassurances from city officials come amid a downturn in crime reporting in the Hispanic community, a point Acevedo made at a press conference earlier this month and reiterated at Monday's event. The proposal has sparked concern among immigrant advocates as well as some law enforcement officials - such as Sheriff Ed Gonzalez - who have worried that it could make cities less safe.

U.S. Supreme Court rules against Houston man paralyzed in 2010 police shooting

The nation's highest court has rejected attempts to revive a civil rights lawsuit brought by a Houston paint contractor who was shot in the back and paralyzed by a police offer in 2010. In declining to hear the case, the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed that lower courts acted properly in granting Houston Police Officer Chris Thompson qualified immunity in the shooting incident, which took place following a late-night traffic stop on the Southwest Freeway. Sotomayor, joined in dissent by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, wrote that issuing summary judgment in favor of police is appropriate only when significant facts are not in dispute. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in June 2016 that a lower judge had properly dismissed Salazar-Limon's lawsuit because of the threat perceived by Thompson, who testified that he had been pushed toward freeway traffic before a combative Salazar-Limon turned away.
